Evaluation of the Stevens HydraProbe Temperature Measurements from -30 to +40 Degrees Celsius
Soil temperature data down to -30° Celsius is becoming more and more relevant to climate studies. While environmental issues fuel the development and the widespread use of sophisticated environmental models, reliable input data is becoming essential for researchers and modelers. The soil temperature data collected by the HydraProbe can be used in climate studies in arctic regions, regional energy budget calculations, drought forecasting and heat fluxes. It is the intent of Stevens Water Monitoring Systems to provide the scientific community a reliable and cost-effective soil temperature sensor to suit the needs of environmental researchers.
